City delays bridge closing

The city Department of Transportation has delayed the closing of the Fort Avenue Bridge till Monday, Aug. 22.

The bridge is being closed for replacement and will be closed for 10 months to 1 year.

The announced completion date for the bridge replacement project is June 1, 2012.

Motorists may use Andre Street or McComas Street to get in and out of Locust Point while the bridge is closed.

DOT and CSX, the company that runs trains through the Locust Point rail yard, are working on a system to send text messages to Locust Pointers’ cell phones when a train is blocking both Andre and McComas St. The system is not yet operational, said DOT spokeswoman Tia Waddy.

Bus detour
The MTA number 1 bus, which travels through Locust Point south of the bridge will be rerouted beginning Aug. 22, according to MTA spokesman John Milton Wesley. The bus will travel on Fort Avenue south to Lawrence Street, then onto Key Highway East to Nicholson Street, then right on Hull Street and back to Fort Avenue.

The Baltimore Guide will print periodic progress updates through the months the bridge is closed.
